“Fantastic Four: 4 Yancy Street” #1

The Fantastic Four have made their home on Yancy Street, but their arrival doesn’t exactly make their neighbors happy. To make matters worse, when our heroes start to investigate a nasty piece of vandalism, The Thing is forced to relive painful memories of his Yancy Street tormentors…and if that’s not enough, danger lurks in every corner with the arrival of The Terrible Trio!

“Last fall, Greg Smallwood and I got to take a big swing at Dr. Strange in ‘The Best Defense’ and now we’re re-teaming to scratch our Fantastic Four itches,” teased Gerry Duggan. “We’re exploring some of the ripples created by their move to Yancy Street, and some classic Jack & Stan villains are invited, too. It’s an oversized love letter to Marvel’s first family, just in time for Marvel’s eightieth birthday.”

Don’t miss the first in a series of regular essential releases that will bring fans new stories of Marvel’s most iconic heroes – FANTASTIC FOUR: YANCY STREET #1 arrives in comic shops this August!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m always game for a new series with a character or team that ive enjoyed over the years, and with The Fanrasric Four making their mark in the illustrated pages once again, there are a lot of stories to tell and catch up to the folks over in the Spider-verse and X-Men side of the Marvel Comics Universe. I need to make sure this isn’t a mini-series but since it doesn’t say that I guess it’s a continuing title. Generally I like to do the minis in collected form but yeah let’s see what happens when its released. What do you readers think about this one. Chime in down below. You know where.
